Resilience 2017 conference

Fourth triennial conference on resilience will take place in Stockholm 21-23 August 2017

In 2008 Stockholm Resilience Centre, Sweden, launched the first resilience conference in Stockholm together with Resilience Alliance and other partner organizations. Since then, conferences have also taken place in Arizona (2011) and Montpellier (2014).

The upcoming Resilience 2017 conference will discuss resilience as a key lens for biosphere-based sustainability science, reflect back on the scientific progress made, and to set out exciting future directions for research. A main focus will be on global sustainability challenges and opportunities, which today are heavily influenced by the speed, scale and connectivity of the Anthropocene.

Participants will be invited to explore four major conference themes:

  1.  Social-ecological Transformations for Sustainability
  2. Teleconnections and Cross-scale Dynamics on a Human-dominated Planet
  3. Multi-level Governance and Biosphere Stewardship
  4. Approaches and methods for understanding social-ecological system dynamics

First call for abstract is scheduled to August, 2016, when a dedicated conference website also will be launched.
